Rudy Van Gelder has passed

We are saddened to report the passing of legendary audio engineer Rudy Van Gelder.  A&M fans remember him as the man who engineered the A&M/CTi albums for producer Creed Taylor.  In the 50s and 60s, he engineered many well known and highly regarded jazz albums for labels such as Prestige, Blue Note, Impulse and others.

Gelder is pictured here with Blue Note Records founder Alfred Lion (right).
